Falklands vote must be unbiased, warns chief exec

A planned referendum on the future sovereignty of the Falkland Islands could be an embarrassing disaster if it is not properly managed, the chief executive of the islands’ government has warned.

The referendum has been called to spell out islanders’ feelings about whether to remain a British overseas territory, in response to political pressure from Argentina.

Keith Padgett told a public meeting the precise wording of the question used in the referendum must be “unbiased” if it is to give the world a message that “we are responsible and we know what form of governance we want.”

St Helenians with resident status in the islands are expected to be eligible to take part in the vote.

A full report appears in Penguin News, the islands’ newspaper
